The IBJ reports that Belskus could be examining the fallowing changes:
- Futures of both stock car and MotoGP races
- Funding of Indycar teams (TEAM program)
- Schedule changes (less ovals more twisties)
- Month of May Schedule (cut by a week, maybe more)
Due to Robin Miller, it wasn't really a huge surprise when Jeff Belskus, the former Chief Financial Officer for IMS, took over for Tony George last summer. It was however still a little unclear as to why. It was said that "the sisters" were unhappy with some of the decision their brother made, but I think the real reason is beginning to come clear.
Tony George is a loyal guy, sometimes to a fault. And I believe that is a huge reason, if not the reason TG stepped down as IMS and IRL CEO earlier this year. It's quite simple, I think he was told that the layoffs/changes needed to be made and he just couldn't do it.
